Ever since my brief Shattered Galaxy stint I’ve been loving the whole custom spaceship battling game. You get an empty hull and lots of options of how to fill it. The trick is the select a good combination of defensive and offensive weaponry. If you like this kind of puzzling, you’ll love the two games [...]
